More than 140 years since his death, the enduring legacy of a great president, an American success story, and the celebrated leader of the Civil War continues. Abraham Lincoln: Quotes, Quips, and Speeches captures the essence of the sixteenth president. In addition to Lincoln’s own words, Gordon Leidner includes insights into the man by those who knew him best, from his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln, to his greatest political opponent, Stephen A. Douglas. Numerous photographs add to the charm and usefulness of the book. Review and Praise: “This is a very short book, but length alone does not matter. The contents, quotes from Lincoln and quotes about him from those who knew him, are a priceless reminder of what our country once was, and can be again.” ~ Frank J. Konopka “This attractively bound little book thus become a perfect gift for a Lincoln fan, a novice to Lincoln speeches, or a young person trying to see beyond the Lincoln icon and legend. I strongly suggest you buy this book by the handful and distribute to all those Lincoln lovers and soon-to-be Lincoln lovers in your circle of friends and family.” ~ A. Ladd of Gettysburgh, Pennsylvania “If anyone truly wants to know what Abraham Lincoln believed throughout his life this is the book to have. Forget the title… It does not say enough. There are quotes that will absolutely blow you away that is as timely today as they were ahead of its time when said. It is a short, comprehensive, collection of what Abraham Lincoln was, through his own words. I highly recommend this book.” ~ E. Murad of New York
